We love IKEA kitchens for the affordable workhorses that they are, but what if they're all starting to look the same to you? Reform, a company that makes cabinet and drawer fronts that fit IKEA kitchens, asked three architecture firms to reimagine what a flat pack kitchen can look like.

The firms, Bjarke Ingels Group, Norm Architects, and Henning Larsen Architects, each gave their take on the IKEA kitchen.

Norm went dark, with handleless fronts and deep wood tones that mimic an antique furniture piece; Henning Larsen kept it sleek with cabinets in white or black, with a steel band in the same color (or oak and copper); and BIG brought in unexpected elements, with pulls made out of seatbelt material.
